Food poisoning phobia

Postby Nazshura В» 23.03.2020

High-dose B vitamin supplementation and cognitive decline in Alzheimer disease: a randomized controlled trial.

FAQ on Coronavirus and Mefi : check before posting, cite sources; how to block content by tags. I have extreme emetophobia which leads to panic attacks. I have not changed my meds in over two years but I'm starting to have panic attacks after eating or when I wake up fearing that I will get sick from food poisoning. I am on a low-carb diet and eat more fresh vegetables and meat. I used to feel safer eating bread and things rarely reported by people as making them ill.

So I think that's why I currently have more anxiety. Meat in our house is handled and cooked properly - but I guess this may not help in some cases. An example: earlier tonight we had some Trader Joe frozen Angus burgers sealed that we thawed in the fridge. They have been in the fridge for three days. When we opened them, they were brownish on the outside and pink in the middle. Not slimey, no odor. So my boyfriend cooked them until they well done and I ate one. Now I'm in a state of panic that I will get sick because of the color before we cooked them.

Question: based on the description of the burgers, do you think they were bad? Is food poisoning totally random at times no matter what you do? It seems common. I have a therapist and am seeing my psychiatrist in a week since I'm having panic attacks again. That sounds like meat I would eat, yeah. Red meat oxidizes to brown really quickly, and it doesn't mean it's going bad.

Here's an old Ask on the subject. Food poisoning isn't necessarily all that common - I've gotten it once that I know of, and I know exactly the stupid, unusual thing I did to give it to myself.

I may have more of a cast-iron stomach than some people, but I strongly doubt I'm out of the normal range. The burgers are fine. Meat turns brown in the presence of oxygen.

Which existed within that sealed bag, enough to brown the outside of the meat. The pink insides weren't brown because there was no oxygen within the patty. Also, please no detailed accounts of food poisoning in your answers! Food poisoning does suck and yes I did have it once. It's a pretty rare thing, I got it in a community public feeding place that some people maybe like yourself? Your body is well-qualified to handle anything "iffy", just the pH in your stomach alone will kill most of the baddies.

Keep up your good habits, and to answer your question, based on your description, I bet the burgers were fine. I think I've had food poisoning once. But even then I can't really remember what it was exactly. The burgers sound fine. No, nthing that the grey discoloration is oxidation, not spoilage. It can happen pretty quick. People eat food that's past its prime all the time.

Usually it just tastes bad, or gives an upset stomach or diarrhea. It's rarely dangerous. Burgers turn brown when they oxidize, which is a totally normal process that does not indicate that the meat is going bad. It sounds like you have, as you mention, some anxiety or other issues around this topic, and perhaps I'm guessing around the topic of control in a greater sense. That's okay. It's good that you are aware of this and it sounds working on it in some way.

The incidence of serious food poisoning in the U. It might help you to take something like a ServSafe course so you can know what the actual, science-based rules of food safety are and follow them in your own home if you like.

Your local health inspector may have information about classes. Breathe easy. It is very, very likely indeed that you are totally safe and fine, and vanishingly unlikely that you aren't.

As people have alluded, browning on meat is not in itself a sign of rotting, but is an inevitable consequence of myoglobin the protein that carries oxygen to muscle tissue being exposed to free oxygen in the air. That doesn't mean that eating brown meat is always a great plan--as this classic AskMe comment points out, the point where oxidative browning becomes really noticeable more or less coincides with the point where bacteria growing on the beef goes from "not a problem for healthy people" to "well Personally, if it smelled all right, I'd probably go for it, but that probably just indicates that I have more frugality than sense.

Buying whole cuts of beef are safer than buying pre-ground beef; if buying a meat grinder would assuage some of your anxiety, it might be worthwhile giving up hamburgers is another option, but given the amount of beef dishes that generally involve ground beef-hamburger, but also chili, meatloaf, lasagna etc. Before I really was aware how long you can keep meat in a refrigerator before or how it should be stored, I did cook myself some chicken that had gone bad.

It took me a while to figure out that the "weird taste" meant that it was spoiled. I noticed the taste, only had a few morsels of it before I threw the rest out, and was fine. I don't like the sensation of being sick to my stomach or nauseous, so I avoid eating heavy foods late at night, drink moderately, and let my food digest for a while before going to sleep.

Food poisoning is completely uncommon. The thing is that there are so many people in America that even very rare occurrences of food poisoning could lead to illness and death because it would still affect a lot of people, some of whom would be very young, very old, or already have some kind of illness that made them vulnerable. That said, I am not going to reason you out of something you didn't reason yourself into. Along with your psychiatrist and therapist, some kind of specific counter-phobia therapy may be in order.

I would cook thoroughly and not give it another thought. No phobia expertise, but maybe it would help to think of vomiting as something your stomach does to protect you rather than to betray you. It is ejecting the offending material in order to keep that material from harming you. I don't know if I'm on sound physiological footing there, but it's always been a helpful thought for me.

What would you do if you had cood poisoning? You have access to Trader Joe's and a working fridge so I suspect you have access to medical care.

The scenario does not sound dangerous to me. Instead if spending time freaking out on the Internet, perhaps you should take a moment to make a plan for what you would do IF you actually had a symptom of some sort - which I think is unlikely - and when you have that plan, try to make and keep a promise to yourself to think about other things for three hours.

Good luck. Anxiety is a powerful poison and the stuff is everywhere. I'm also kind of weird about food safety, and I probably would have eaten the burgers. Do you think you would have felt better about them if they'd spent less time in the fridge? If so, maybe you could direct some of your anxious energy into planning meals so that meat and other spoilage-prone foods don't languish in the fridge for days. I get nervous about meat after a couple of days. I've also only had food poisoning one time.

It was from a restaurant, not something I cooked myself, and I've eaten at a lot of sketchy places. I won't pretend that my bout of food poisoning wasn't unpleasant, but it only lasted for a couple of days and then I was as good as new. For me, it was helpful to remind myself during the throes of misery that it was all temporary and I'd feel better soon.

I also took a lot of Benadryl, which helped me sleep and reduced my nausea. Maybe having a plan for what you'd do if you actually did get sick would help? Have you considered becoming a vegetarian? I also have a fear of food poisoning, although not of vomiting. It used to be a flat-out phobia.

Therapy did help. Everyday I eat something that inspires at least a little bit of "oh god, listeria and botulism" anxiety. Unlike other commenters, I have had food poisoning a few times in my life. Food poisoning isn't THAT uncommon, but severe, deadly food poisoning is uncommon - "CDC estimates that each year roughly 1 in 6 Americans or 48 million people get sick, , are hospitalized, and 3, die of foodborne diseases. Because you have to eat, and eating should be pleasant, and there's always a chance that you'll get sick from what you eat.

The only thing that has helped me, has been to consciously, actively accept that risk, and eat anyway. That is the only way I was able to feel in control of the situation again - by acknowledging that I do not and cannot have perfect control, and choosing to go on, anyway.

I know that this sounds like such facile advice in the face of that awful feeling of bottomless panic. It's a simplistic distillation of a lot of hard, scary work. But it's how I started eating like a healthier person again. Your burgers are almost certainly fine, but it's not good to give a lot of reassurance to phobic people.

It'll briefly taking the edge off, but will reinforce the phobia's perceived legitimacy. In my experience, and according to my therapist. If you had food poisoning, you would be too busy dealing with the food poisoning getting too nauseous to function, bathroom troubles, vomiting to worry about whether or not you had food poisoning.

Your anxiety is trying to trick you into uncertainty because that is where anxiety thrives. But, it's a trick, because when something is actually wrong, you know it's wrong.

People with a food phobia may have a fear of almost all food and beverages, or their fear may be more specific. I see more by a location near me the other day and the line was out the door, as it was before the outbreak. I totally understand how debilitating this fear can be.

You don't convince yourself. From that episode of food poisoning emerged a vast and severe anxiety of being sick after I eat. I once had an iffy provider code oyster from a clam shack and spent the food three hours phobia, and another time vomited exactly once poisoning eating street food all day at a festival, but that's the closest I've come. However, when the fear of food interferes with your daily life and prevents you from enjoying meals, you may have a food phobia.
